From the Back Cover:

With the first edition selling quite well in the retail market, this successful handbook for writers has been revised to strengthen its practical focus on helping novice writers make connections between thinking, reading, and writing. This reference is ideal for anyone wishing to strengthen their writing and communication skills. It connects good writing to grammar and usage principles and continues to remain the strongest handbook in the treatments of exploratory, analytical, and argumentative writing. The writing and research sections are also exceptional, and new sections thoroughly explain how to evaluate, integrate, and document on-line and Internet source material. This guide should be on the bookshelves of writers, researchers, and teachers alike.
